If you haven’t tried a MOOC yet (a Massive, Open, Online Course), it’s time! These free courses vary in quality, but many are taught by experts like Dan Ariely and Dylan Wiliam and can be exceptional.

Here’s what’s on offer at FutureLearn (my personal favorite go-to for MOOCs; I love the way they are organized and they are easy to jump in and out of.)

Blended Learning — A free course for the Vocational Education and Training sector to promote effective practice and pedagogy in blended learning.
